Foam Boards: Surface, Doyle?

« on: January 05 2006 15:01:00 »

Hi  I was wondering if anyone has comments on the Surface foam board?  I am looking to purchase a new one, but how good are they really compared to the Doyle? Thanks, Becky

I probably won't be much help but I teach friends all the time and I end up riding their rentals or boards they bought so they can use my Surface. Super easy to get up on, has the speed necessary, and easy to control. Oh, and it doesn't hurt as bad as my hard board when I get thrashed.

I have/had a Surface 9ft foam board.  Absolutely loved it, great board.  It was my learner board and it really is the reason I got so addicted to surfing.  I still love how it handles and how easy it is to catch a wave.  She finally broke last friday when a nice over head trashed me and ripped the leash, fin, screws right out the back of the board.  As soon as I see another one like it I will by a new one.  I own many boards from th Doyles.. which also offer a foam board, which is not nearly as good in my opinion for beginner but an outstanding transition board... up to 2500 dollar boards but nothing can replace my surface foam board on those nice easy long breaking days.. all I need is a little ripple and I am off having fun. :-)
